Roasted Garlic Creamed Spinach

Make this classic steak side with Stay Home for a Steakhouse Supper: Steaks with French Onion Sauce [1] and Stay Home for a Steakhouse Supper: Sour Cream and Onion Rings [2]. You can also try Double-Baked Crazy-Crisp Oven Fries [3] as an alternative side dish!



Pre-heat the oven to 425°F.

Drizzle the garlic with EVOO [4] and season with a little salt. Wrap tightly in foil and roast the garlic until soft, 45 minutes. Let cool to handle.

Combine the garlic, half-and-half, salt, white pepper and a little nutmeg in a blender and puree. Adjust the seasoning, to taste.

In medium size skillet [5] over medium heat, melt the butter and whisk [6] in the flour. Cook for 1 minute, add the half-and-half mixture and bring to a bubble. Separate the spinach with your fingertips as you add it to the sauce. Simmer at a low bubble to thicken, 20-25 minutes.
